My Preciousssssss-es

We loves our patternses, precious. We makes nice copies of them for usss…

I finally made sturdier copies of my sloper and self-drafted patterns. I’ve been drafting, modifying, and sewing with my poor, sad tissue paper versions since last Thanksgiving.

my poor beleaguered pattern

They are more tape than paper at this point and softly whisper “kill meeeee”.

While resourcefulness is a virtue and cached gift-wrap tissue paper is really easy to manipulate, it does not stand the test of time.

I went to a nearby sewing studio so I could use their large, high tables and real pattern paper!

It took about 1.5 hours to copy the pieces for my sloper, dresses, fitted shirt, and skirt – much faster than if I had done it at home.

I also took the opportunity to fix little things in the patterns that I usually deal with while sewing. I trued the front and back necklines for each pattern and finally trued the bust dart on my fitted shirt, so I don’t have to remember to do it when I’m cutting the fabric!

Can’t wait to take them for a spin! Aren’t they pretty, precious?
